The AACTA Award for Best International Film is an award presented by the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA), a non-profit organisation whose aim is to "to identify, award, promote and celebrate Australia's greatest achievements in film and television." The award is presented at the annual AACTA International Awards, which hand out accolades for achievements in feature films regardless of where the film was made. From 1992–2004, a similar award was presented by the Australian Film Institute (AFI), the Academy's parent organisation. It was known as the AFI Award for Best Foreign Film, and was handed out at the annual Australian Film Institute Awards (known as the AFI Awards).
The winners and nominees for 2011 were determined by a jury.
